Hello all,

I have two things:

1) a valid and displayed OMGraphic with LatLonPoint (of course).
2) a valid and displayed OMPoly ( in the form of ESRIPolygon ).

The OMGraphic point is inside the OMPoly. It's like a town inside a state.
The state is represented by the OMPoly and the town is a simple OMGraphic.
I want to show programmatically that the town is inside the state.

My following code is not printing "true":


// some code bringing me here
// OMPoly is on map

EsriPolygon ep = (EsriPolygon) omg;

ep.setDoShapes( true );
ep.generate( projection );
GeneralPath gp = ep.getShape();

  // latLonPoint is inside the polygon
  // THIS PRINTS "false" EXPECT IT TO PRINT "true"
System.out.println( "Inside polygon: " + gp.contains(
latLonPoint.getLongitude(), latLonPoint.getLatitude() );


I expect gp.contains( ) wants another representation of x,y but I don't know

Any help is greatly appreciated.
